A Girl I Know Named Holly

Now don't be too surprised, but I have finally bought an Integrity Toys fashion doll! Most of the time I find the ones I like are either out of stock or they are so ridiculously overpriced on the secondary market I simply cannot justify spending the money. However, this one was too good to pass on.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the most stylish movies ever captured on film and its chic ingenue, Integrity Toys and Paramount teamed together in 2011 to bring collectors an exquisite "50th Anniversary Commemorative Fashion Doll Collection".

I have always loved the film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and Audrey Hepburn in particular played such a fabulous role in this movie with costuming by Hubert de Givenchy that was to die for. So it wasn't hard for me to part with the cash to bring this one home (and fortunately for me, she was only travelling from interstate, so postage wasn't the killer it usually is).

“How Do I Look” is Holly at her most simple and charming self. A girl has to have her beauty sleep, that is until a tall and handsome gentleman writer with boyish good looks and the deepest blue eyes anyone has ever seen rings her door because he forgot his keys. What follows is a beautiful friendship that reluctantly turns into unbridled passion. This wonderful look proves that Holly is quirky and charming even when she sleeps!!

She is fifth in the series and has a 12-inch fully articulated vinyl Poppy Parker body(without articulated ankles). She is a dressed doll with rooted hair and applied eyelashes. Included is a night shirt, bright peach satin robe, sleepy eyes night mask, ear plugs, doll stand and certificate of authenticity ~ Limited Edition to 500.

I shall look forward to making costumes for this doll!
Hope you all have an enjoyable week ahead of you all, big hugs,
